Adrian Madriz is like the opposite of a slumlord. If there is such a thing, he embodies it. I’ve sat across from this man as he works for the better part of a year. The unintentional eavesdropping that occurred informed me that Adrian is a man of integrity, discipline, and is indefatigably dedicated to helping those in need. It’s dangerously charming.

Then there’s Stefan Ravalli. Host of the Serve Conscious Podcast. He’s just so amenable, understanding, and hospitable it makes you want to spit. But you don’t because you know his desire to serve is genuine and his very presence makes you want to be better. Just talking about service with him makes one question the meaning of the word.
